but it also serves as a therapeutic means. (man) this music has one message. you've got to feel something. you leave here, you should feel better than when you came in the door. tom dorsey was the godfather, if you will, of gospel music. who was he? the blues musician, jazz musician, playing in the honky tonks and all that. and then one day, according to tom dorsey, god spoke to him and said, "no, no, no. "you're going to stop playing this music. we're going to bring this into the church." now, at that time, i mean, gospel music was resisted. who are these people bringing this boogey-woogey music into the church? there was a lot of opposition to it. but slowly, over time, you know, cream rises to the top. and you couldn't hold back this avalanche, this feeling, this desire, because it does speak to the people in a way that, you know, no other music form in our church really speaks to us.
